Many English translations of the New Testament record John 3:8 like this: “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” This rendering has caused a great deal of confusion concerning the message Jesus is preaching about being born again, or born of water and the Spirit. In this presentation from the 2017 Grapevine, TX Preacher’s Study, evangelist Clint De France gives an exposition of the passage with special emphasis on how to interpret John 3:8.

Social drinking is one of those controversies that never seems to find a resolution among the people of God. In today’s sermon, evangelist Clint De France looks at alcoholic beverage consumption from the perspective of solemn Divine utterances–what has God said about it? As Paul admonished, “Abstain from every form of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22).
Do you have a yearning to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:24) but at the same time you are confused about which church is the Lord’s church? Is it possible to find the 1st century church of scripture still alive and well in the 21st century?
The answer is yes! Evangelist Clint Defrance addresses this topical issue and shows that from a human perspective this quest seems impossible but you can know the church that Jesus referred to as ‘My church’ (Matt 16:18).
In today’s sermon, evangelist Clint De France considers a terrible case of apostasy recorded in the scripture in the gospel of John. How can another Christian decide to leave Christ and turn back into a life of sin?
When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, “Does this offend you?…From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more.John 6:61,66
In today’s sermon from the 2017 Texas Labor day meeting, evangelist Clint De France considers the Biblical individual known as Simon the ‘zealot.’ What did his name mean, and more importantly, did he remain a zealot after he met the Lord?
And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James.
Did you know that in one place the Bible teaches Christians ”do not believe?”
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)
Unbelief is a necessary attribute of every Christian. We must test all teachings to see whether they are found in God’s word. In this sermon evangelist Clint Defrance discusses how Christians are to be like metallurgists testing metals as we run an ‘assay’ on every doctrine that we hear.
Little is certain in life, yet the Bible teaches that while possibilities abound, sometimes that which is possible can be made into an absolute certainty. Find out how in this sermon from evangelist Clint De France. Turning Possibilities in Certainties MP3 Link
